HAI certified to ASI Performance Standard

Ranshofen (24.3.2020)  –  Aluminium expert Hammerer Aluminium Industries (HAI) has achieved the Performance Standard certification in the CASTING division of the Aluminium Steward Initiative (ASI) in Ranshofen.

The official certification according to the ASI standard, one of the highest industry standards with regard to sustainability and responsible action in the aluminium industry, testifies to the strict focus at Hammerer Aluminium Industries on sustainability all along the aluminium value chain.

„In view of our high motivation to continuously improve our business processes and make them sustainable, we are very proud to be accepted into the ASI community. We focus intentionally on the continuous development of sustainable production processes. In doing so, we are complying with our commitments to ethical and social aspects as well as to the environment,“ stressed CEO Rob van Gils at the official certification of CASTING in Ranshofen.

Efficient, consistent recycling as the key

The basis for the successful certification, according to ASI Performance Standard, has been laid by HAI with the consistent use of recycled aluminium. The use of recycled aluminium scrap enables the company to make a significant contribution to a sustainable aluminium value chain. The ASI certificate is proof of HAI’s high commitment to sustainable production.

This claim is underlined by Managing Director Markus Schober: „It is important for us to ensure that aluminium scrap from all product segments is recycled efficiently in order to increase recycling rates and thus make a contribution to climate neutrality and recycling management.”
